The Misfits of Science released the video for their debut single 'Fools Love' in 2004, without really knowing how the NZ public was going to react. Scan forward a couple months, and it's the #1 song in NZ, clocking up 4 weeks at the top of the charts, 4 months in the Top 10 and platinum + sales.
The accompanying video swiftly picked up gongs at the Juice TV Awards, the Bnet Awards and the Kodak Clip Zwards and was nominated for Video Of The Year at the 2004 NZ Music Awards. To feed ever increasing public demand the band also released a second clip for the 'Fools Love Ragga Remix'.
So finally it’s time for their debut album. 'MOS Presents' was recorded at Beaver Studios and produced, mixed and mastered by Simon Holloway. Featured appearances include Tuff Enchant (who also guested on the 'Fools Love Ragga Remix') on 'La Musica', AL (of Breakin Wreckwordz) on 'Three Days Of The Blender' and Chong Nee (of Dei Hamo) on 'Hater Nation'.
Also featured on the album are a 7 piece chicken choir, led by lovely silky hen Priscilla, who appear on the track 'Attack Of The Dickriders'. The chickens were recorded live at Beaver Studios, and Priscilla was also photographed to appear in two images used on the 'MOS Presents' album cover. Priscilla was then auctioned on TradeMe, and fetched a handsome sum – no doubt due to her heightened profile as a session performer and cover model.
